Most of the city f Portsmouth lies on Portsea Island which is located where the Solent joins the English Channel. The city is in the county of Hampshire and is the United Kingdom's only island city. Portsea Island is separated from the mainland by a narrow creek, which is known locally by Portsbridge Creek. Portsmouth Harbour lies to the west of Portsea Island and the large tidal bay of Langstone Harbour is to the east.
Portsmouth's main shopping district is centred around Commercial Road, Edinburgh Road, Arundel Street, Crasswell Street and Charlotte Street. The city also has the Cascades Shopping Centre where many high street stores can be found. Many of the city's bars and nightclubs, including The Lyberry, Skyebar, Astoria and POPworld, can be found on Guildhall Walk.
Portsmouth has three theatres: the New Theatre Royal in Guildhall Walk, near to the City Centre, which specialises in classical, modern and avant-garde drama, and the newly restored Kings Theatre in Southsea's Albert Road, which has many amateur musicals as well an increasing number of national tours. The other theatre is The Groundlings Theatre, situated in The Old Beneficial School, Portsea.
The city's Roman Catholic Cathedral can be found on Edinburgh Road and Victoria Park, to the west of the city centre, is also home to Portsmouth's second football team, the United Services Portsmouth Football Club.
Located in the county of Lincolnshire, the city of Lincoln is an ideal destination for a city break. The city offers an experience rich in history combined with independent boutique shopping, great arts and culture and a wealth of places to eat and drink. The city is easily walkable for visitors with good mobility - the main shopping and tourist area stretches from St Marks Shopping centre in the south up to the Cathedral Quarter - known locally as 'Uphill'. Steep Hill, voted Britain's Great Street 2012, connects 'downhill' and 'uphill' Lincoln.
The Collection (a museum and gallery in the city) of which the Usher Gallery is now a part, is an important attraction. Housed partly in a recently opened, purpose-built venue, it currently contains over 2,000,000 objects, and was one of the four finalists for the 2006 Gulbenkian Prize. Any material from official archaeological excavations in Lincolnshire is eventually displayed at The Collection and therefore it is growing all the time.
The easiest way to get around central Lincoln is on foot. The city is small and compact with services and attractions within a few minutes walk of each other. It should be possible to walk from the easternmost end of Lincoln to the western end at a very leisurely pace in around one hour.
